Workouts, November 12-18

My workouts were pretty good, but I'm still worried about a potential gain. I didn't do well tracking my food this week. I just need to force myself to do it right before or right after every meal.

I discovered tonight that when I'm feeling frustrated that I can't keep up with the other swimmers in my lane, anything my coach says is just going to register as an annoyance. I know he is only trying to help. I am a bad sport when I'm tired and getting behind.  And yes, I know now, as I sit here tired and removed from the situation, that some of these women have been swimming since they were kids and are just better, and others practice more than I do. I did get in an extra swim workout this week, and maybe I can use these to perfect my flip turns, which really slow me down right now.

Workouts:

Monday: Walk/run workout, 15 minutes running/20 minutes of walking
Tuesday: Swam 50 minutes
Wednesday: Spin class, 45 minutes
Thursday: Off
Friday: Walk/run workout, 18 minutes of running and about 20 of walking
Saturday: Pilates Circuit
Sunday: Masters' swim group, 1 hour

  1. That's hard. I remember the first (and only) Masters class I went to, I was feeling incredibly frustrated, and I hadn't been swimming (in that way) for years.

    It's important not to compare, but it's very hard not to do. Keep workin' it!
